Designer Kelly Flynn

Designer Kelly Flynn may have pulled off a remodeling magic trick when she crafted a spacious-feeling plan for this 95-square-foot master bath. Her first feat: removing the old jetted tub and tub deck. When she discovered essential plumbing was hidden beneath the deck, she enclosed it with half walls on either end of the new free-standing tub—one wall acts as a bench in the new glass-enclosed shower, and the other, she says, “created a clever location for a remnant of soapstone to be a very intentional-looking place to put a book or glass of wine.”

A savvy mix of tiles gives the small bath a high-end finish. The top half of the wall that spans the shower and tub sports a smoky-blue subway tile, the bottom a Capco subway tile with a handmade look. Where the two meet, Flynn added a band of Ann Sacks textured tiles. “I love how luxurious and spa-like this bathroom feels,” she says.

PRO TIP: “Leave open space in every room to breathe. Just because you can fit the big tub and the big vanity and the big chandelier doesn’t mean it will all work together.” — Designer Kelly Flynn
